Where are you getting ready on your wedding day?

Where will you get ready on the morning of your wedding? Is there a place to get dressed at your ceremony venue? Have you booked a hotel? Will you be gathering at a friend or relative's house? Or will you be at your own home?

Who will be there getting ready with you?

    We are getting ready at the bridal cottage on the venue grounds, myself, my 'maids, and my mom.

    We had to shell out $750 extra for the cottage for the day Smiley surprise which I don't really understand because most venues around here include a bridal suite when you book...oh well lol

    Our venue unfortunately doesn't have a bridal suite onsite so we are getting ready at our hotel then heading over to the venue in separate groups for our first look.

    We are getting married at a small boutique hotel for a destination wedding, so we will already have a room booked, and so will family and friends. Me and my two best friends, my mom, and FMIL will get ready in our room. Fiance, his friends, and his dad will either get ready in his dads room or his mom and step dads room.

    We're getting married at my church. My girls and I will be getting ready in the parlor. It's the designated "bridal suite" for the church. The room has lots of couches and chairs and a full length mirror, plus access to a small kitchenette. It's also downstairs from the main floor so people aren't as likely to make surprise visits. The guys will get ready in one of the upstairs Sunday school rooms.

    I’m going to get a suite at the hotel for me and the bridesmaids to get ready. The guys will get ready in their hotel rooms. My venue does have a small room, but it’s more like a staging area.

    We live less than 2 miles away from the venues (somewhat strategic) so I am planning to get ready at home! It will be wonderful! He will likely get ready at his parents house or even our neighbors (close friends). I can’t imagine spending money on a hotel room when everything is so convenient for us in our own home. We’re looking forward to waking up here not only the morning after we get married but also the morning of our wedding day.

    Thankfully, the venue is about half a mile from out apartment, and our apartment is HUGE. So, all 4 of my bridesmaids and my mom will be staying the night before, and we will all be getting ready the next day. I'm anticipating FMIL will also come over, but it should be a pretty laid back day.

    Luckily FH has aunts and cousins that live down the street from our church. The girls will get ready at his cousin's house and the guys will get ready at his aunt's house where we will be doing our first look.

    There is a bridal suite at the venue, but we are getting ready at my Mom's aka my childhood home. I just feel more comfortable at my Mom's house.

    All my BM's, mom and probably my neighbor across the street, who is like a second mom to me and my sister!

    In one of the rooms at the B&B where our wedding will be held. It was included in the cost of renting the venue.

    I am having my ceremony and reception at the same venue and it is a little bit of a drive from my house so we are booking a hotel nearby and the morning of our wedding we will be going to the venue and using their Bridal and groom Suites to get ready. Which makes it totally convenient for my to photographers to be able to photograph us getting ready!

    We are booking two suites at one of our hotel blocks, one for the bridal party and one for the grooms party to get ready and have lunch the morning of the wedding. The wedding party members are staying at the same hotel block.

    At a hotel. Our hotel owns, operates and is connected to our venue.

    We're getting ready at the hotel where the reception is. I'm staying in the bridal suite the night before the wedding, so my bridesmaids and Mom will join me the next morning when the HMUAs arrive. I'll be ordering in breakfast and lunch for everyone since we're starting so early and leaving for first look photos around 2:30.
